What do CFCs stand for? Name some devices where CFCs are used. Why CFCs are considered as pollutants?
Answer:

  • CFCs stand for chlorofluorocarbons. CFCs are used in refrigerators, air conditioners, etc.
  • When chlorofluorocarbons are released into air, they deplete the ozone layer and the ultraviolet rays reach the earth causing harmful effects.
